Anjali Anjali Pushpanjali

Duet (Tamil feature) was one of those remakes based on the film Saajan (a hindi blockbuster) that didn't turn out to be same as its hindi sibling. Starring Prabhu and Venkatesh with Meenakshi Seshadri adding color to the screen, this movie had some wonderful song of which this number Anjali Anjali really reached the top of the charts in its time. The Sax played on screen by Prabhu was just awesome. SP Balasubramaniam as usual was at his best in this yet another high pitch song. While I couldn't get the original soundtrack (karaoke), I settled for this keyboard remix of this melodious song and have attempted to make my own.

Company Video Challenge

Late last year, we had a video challenge in my company requiring the participating teams to submit a 90 sec video; this was based on my company's 4 core values for a grand first price of a 42 inch LCD tv. The attached video in this blog was conceptualized, video-graphed, and edited by me, while my brother and one other team member provided able support. While we didn't win the 1st place, our video made it to the top 10 amongst 47 other submissions making us eligible for a consolation prize of 1 year free subscription for Netflix DVD rental.

I was really impressed and satisfied with the end product we delivered in this effort. Noteworthy in this video is that all the cast members are our colleagues who extended their cooperation in enabling this to the top 10.

Enjoy this video, filmed on one of our companies core values "Employer of Choice"

Padum Pothu Naan Thendral Katru

This is one of those olden goldies which exhibits SP Balasubramanian's melodious voice. Infact, when you compare some of his old songs (period when he came into film singing) with his more contemporary ones, you can feel the tenderness in his voice in those songs from yester-years.

This song from the film Netru Indru Naalai made in the year 1974 starring MGR, Manuja, Latha had MS Viswanathan scoring the background music happens to be one of my favorite numbers. Very simple and soulful this song makes older generation folks get nostalgic with pleasant memories of those golden years.

Though a tough song originally sung in high pitch by SPB, I have tried to do this karaoke with available soundtrack from online. Enjoy and provide your comments.
